Stewart the new featured RB

50 posts in this topic

Per Rotoworld:

The Associated Press confirms coach Ron Rivera planned to use Jonathan Stewart as the "clear featured back" in Week 7 versus the Cowboys.

Beat writer Steve Reed notes that Rivera "tried to change things up schematically" to give Stewart a shot "as the workhorse running back." Rivera indicated that other such personnel and scheme changes could be coming this week, though he did not expand on his backfield plans. Stewart played 58 snaps in Week 7 compared to 15 for Mike Tolbert and just five for a benched DeAngelo Williams. If Rivera does want to establish Stewart, it makes sense to give him more than a one-week audition. Stewart is talented enough to turn the Panthers' struggling ground attack around. He should be owned in all fantasy leagues going forward.

DWill rushes for 2,000 yards in 2013 and wins a SB....Stewart stuck with a continuous rebuilding program...

Makes sense....

Stewart is in the stage of his career where making him the primary RB gives him the best shot for him to explode.

Williams already had his career year.....years ago. Probably setting the stage to cut him after this year and rid themselves of the over investment at the postion.

I see the same trend.

Deangelo has been a whiny baby on twitter the past few weeks and has in general looked very ineffective.

He gone after this season 100%.

Must be nice to get paid 40 Million just to jack off on twitter all week and not even play.
